able to make this section sound somewhat better

Subject: Daybreak on the Land...
The places the Grateful Dead
could take 'Playing in The Band'
The nights where I couldn't
make heads or tails of my list
Always seemed to involve P.I.T.B
into something then headed somewhere else
then returning back to P.I.T.B maybe that set?
maybe that night? maybe the next night?
Maybe that tour, weaving in and out
always left me with some tears
feeling my humanity.
humbled to be part of it all
And no I never got to see
the Dead back in these days
but I can tell you
I would have been
just like anyone else
"One more wave
upon the sand"
"There is no need to be worrying
about those people
never see those people anyway"
Everything right with the world during the quiet
moments in the music
"Come hear Uncle John's Band"
and finally full circle back to P.I.T.B.
In the 80's and 90's we would be eyeing
an encore but in 1973
there is still plenty of music to be had.
That these recordings are available
is nothing short of a miracle.
Like how long would it have taken me to get all
the Grateful Dead I wanted onto Maxell's
and then how much longer to actually
listen to them all.
Hope they didn't get water damaged
Maybe put some filler ,etc, a lifetime.
a lifetime at my fingertips
I am not sure that anyone has made out as well
as us Deadheads.
The great Libraries of the world may be at our disposal
but I can't put that in my pipe and smoke it.
As far as comments about this scream or that vocal flubb.
It is all out there floating in space and when the music was being created I am sure everyone gave it whatever they had and then sent it on its merry way or as Garcia sang, "A broken angel sings from a guitar"
Fallen creatures with 'just the pavement left and broken dreams'..
It is ironic after all this time that some of the harshest critics of the band who didn't get it then, and some still don't get it now are homegrown heads.
What we have to say 5 minutes or 50 years later really has no bearing on anything at all.
There are many shows that are just barely 5 stars in my book, and then after that a smaller group of shows that are a solid 5 stars but then there is this last group of shows that are so over the top that just even talking to much about them can be a disservice.
Now look some of these are subjective.
You might have a show from 1989 that you rate in that hallowed ground category.
And that is the beauty of the Grateful Dead.
Hopefully we can allow room for everybody to bring in their take on a show.
Anyway, in between the preacher giving a call for repentance you could play this show at my funeral
and I might even manage to crack a smile.
"Only those things done for Christ
will last"

Subject: Great show, I was there
My sister and some friends went to this show. We had heard that the show before it in San Diego was epic, and that the band was "really tight and together" during that show. When they came out, you could tell people were pretty surprised to see Garcia clean shaven and Bob Weir with a beard.

The sound was epic, the show was epic, and this recording is too and it's just as I remember it.
